Sinfonia go back to school

Bridgnorth Sinfonia will be performing two summer concerts this year in St Mary’s Church, East Castle Street. On Monday 17 June, they will perform an adapted version of ‘Peer Gynt’ for an audience of primary school children; audience participation is encouraged! Dr James Ross will conduct and the narrator will be David Carr, who has adapted the story for the concert.

In the weeks leading up to the show, Sinfonia members will be visiting local schools on a weekly basis to introduce children to a range of instruments and music. Sinfonia member Kate Bedford explains, “We’re able to go into schools thanks to our generous sponsors, Bridgnorth Lions and Rotary Club Bridgnorth. If anyone would like to be a sponsor, they can contact me at katebedford@yahoo.co.uk.”

The Sinfonia will return to St Marys for their summer concert on Saturday 29 June at 7.30pm. Dr Ross will lead the orchestra through a diverse programme including Mendelssohn Symphony 3 ‘Scottish’, the Elgar Cello Concerto, featuring soloist Ruth Heneley and Grieg’s Peer Gynt. Tickets are £10 on the door (£7.50 for Sinfonia friends); U16s and students are free.
